Ray Wilkins believes Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is in a similar position to Jurgen Klopp at QPR

Ray Wilkins On Pitch

The former QPR player and manager believes Hasselbaink will have his eyes on the play-offs.

Queens Park Rangers picked up a big win against promotion chasing Derby County yesterday. The Hoops won 2-0 at Loftus Road - courtesy of an acrobatic volley from Tjarron Chery and a close range finish from Gabriele Angella.

The result put a serious dent in Derby's automatic promotion hopes but might have reignited QPR's chances of qualifying for the play-off places.

The club are now just nine points off the play-off places but their inconsistency continues to blight any hopes of potential promotion.

One former QPR player and manager is however certain that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink will have his eyes on the top six, even if he personally thinks it is now too late.

Ray Wilkins, who spent two years as QPR player-manager and had a previous stint as a player at Loftus Road said this of Hasselbaink on Sky Sports News HQ this morning, a player he worked with during his time at Chelsea:

"QPR at Loftus Road are a top proposition. Jimmy I imagine has got his eye on a play-off spot if they can put a run together.

"I think it is a little bit too late for it, but I'm sure Jimmy will be thinking that.

"Once again, a bit like (Liverpool boss Jurgen) Klopp judge Jimmy next season when he has been able to bring in his own players and manufactured the sort of side that he wants to produce."

QPR fans, even the most optimistic, are likely to agree with Wilkins and have their eyes set firmly on a good campaign next year.

Hopefully Hasselbaink will be able to shape together a team he wants in order to push on in the Championship from next term.
